About Chinatown:
As is the case in many big cities, there are certain neighborhoods that hold a certain charm for both locals and tourists. Chinatown is one of those  neighborhoods in San Francisco. As you step through the Chinatown Gate onto Grant Avenue, you’ll experience a flurry of sights and sounds that are different from every other part of the City.

When it comes to Shopping in San Francisco in Chinatown, you will find treasures not available at the City’s other Shopping malls or districts. From the stereotypical tiny Buddhas to the rest of the kitsch associated with Chinatown to beautiful pieces of art, it’s all here.

While Chinatown is a good choice for Shopping in San Francisco, it is also a place to be experienced just for its culture and history. Roam the streets, take in the sights and sounds of the street markets, watch old men perform on traditional musical instruments, and, of course, enjoy some authentically-prepared Chinese food.

What about the Shopping? You’ll love it! Tiny shops, well-appointed galleries, antique stores, street markets – it’s all here. As mentioned above, Chinatown is popular with both locals and tourists, and we love recommending a visit here to guests at Union Square Hotel.
